Threat and risk assessment for radioactive substances

FOI carries out threat and risk assessments for radioactive substances and ionising radiation from an overall perspective, primarily in the context of accidents and deliberate dissemination.


We can provide support in the production of risk and vulnerability analyses and act as advisers to other authorities in preparing plans of action in the event of an accident involving radioactive emissions. We also assist the Swedish government offices in emergency situations, one example being by making experts available to the embassy staff in Tokyo in the wake of the Fukoshima earthquake disaster.
